Alexander vows to KO Roy Jones

Max Alexander understands his current place in the boxing world. Inactive for two years and without a win in his past six fights, few if any give him any chance at all of coming out on top in his December 10 showdown with the legendary Roy Jones Jr. at the Atlanta Civic Center. For that very reason, Alexander didn’t hesitate to accept this assignment, one the cruiserweight views as the opportunity of a lifetime when he squares off against the 12-time world champion in four weight classes who is destined for the Boxing Hall of Fame.

Not only is the Camden (NJ)-based fighter confident of victory, he goes as far as to guarantee when the fight will end and literally willing to put his money where his mouth is. “I have been working hard, training hard, and I will knock out Roy Jones, Jr. by the 6th round,” says Alexander (14-5-2, 2KO), who participated in Season Three of the boxing reality show ‘The Contender.’ “If I don’t KO him by 6th Rd I will forfeit my purse. Roy doesn’t stand a chance against me. I am 6’2” with a 76” reach and I have a right hand that will put Roy to sleep.”

NY Post: Another Oscar scandal?

25-year-old former Playboy model Angelica Marie Cecora has filed a lawsuit against ring legend and promoter Oscar de la Hoya alleging emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and battery during a drug-fueled sex party that took place several months before Oscar went into rehab. “It was beyond kinky,” Cecora, told The New York Post.

Trinidad gifts King $500k

Boxing promoter Don King received a gift of $500,000 from his fighter Felix “Tito” Trindad in celebration of his 80th birthday. Trinidad, a five-time world champion who King promoted in his most thrilling world championship matches, was not able to come to South Florida to celebrate the milestone birthday with his longtime promoter on Aug. 20, so he sent the big present to let King know how much he appreciates all of his efforts on his behalf. In a note that accompanied the gift, Felix “Tito” Trinidad and his father Juan Felix “Papa” Trinidad Rodriguez Sr. gave birthday wishes and noted their gratitude to King. “We want to express congratulations on your 80th birthday and hope that you maintain good health for the years to come. We want to express our gratitude to you for the opportunities you gave us.” King said it was completely unexpected. “You can imagine my surprise when I received this gift from Tito and Papa,” King said. “We had been planning on getting together, but our schedules had not lined up. What a pleasant surprise it was for them to let me know they still love and appreciate me. I feel the same way about them.”
